You can enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay in the morning and a sunset overlooking the Gulf of Mexico that evening. The turquoise Island Trolley will take you the entire length of this beautiful 7 mile island free of charge stopping off at any one of the 80 conveniently located trolley stops to dine, shop or just stroll along the historic streets & along the miles of beautiful beaches.

What Is Parking Like on Bridge Street?

Parking is limited on the street, so we recommend that you leave your car at your hotel if you are visiting and use the free trolley. If you need to use your car, then check for open spots on the street, but consider parking at Coquina Beach and use the trolley to get to the street or call the Monkey Bus to pick you up.
